Our Favorite Twitter Reponses to Jon Stewart Leaving ‘The Daily Show’
Jon Stewart leaving ‘The Daily Show’ was going to be tough whenever it happened, but losing him around the same time as Colbert and Letterman really shakes up the late night TV hierarchy. Colbert will be taking over for Letterman, but it won’t be the Colbert we all love and remember. Naturally when something like this happens, we turn to Twitter for the most thought out and rational responses. Take it away, tweeters.
I worry for the USA without Jon Stewart like I would would worry for a cartoon character that lost the angel on its shoulder.

This is actually beautiful. Well said, Solitary Refinement (if that’s your real name).
With the retiring of Jon Stewart and the rise of BuzzFeed, I’m worried about the future of our country.

Shhh Eric, BuzzFeed can hear you. It hears everything at all times.
getting texts from friends sending their condolences to me about the retirement of Jon Stewart lol. That’s how much this man has meant to me

We feel your pain, Karl. But have no fear, he’ll be back someday.
Really hoping Jon Stewart takes over NBC Nightly News and Brian Williams takes over The Daily Show. It’d be just like Freaky Friday!

Whoever had 50-1 odds on the Jamie Lee Curtis movie reference/Jon Stewart leaving The Daily Show just won a shitload of money.
But actually though, can we start fundraising for Jon Stewart for President? Cause that’s something I could support

I mean, why not?

Oh god. Please no. Don’t leave us Jon!
